Lipstick on a Pig

Yesterday's Daily Inspiration - prescient

When Barack Obama said John McCain's campaign was like putting lipstick on a pig, why was the first thing McCain thought of Sarah Palin?

McCain's complaining about Obama's use of the expression is even more ridiculous when you realize that he used it to describe Hillary Clinton's health care plan -- in 2007. Was he calling Hillary a pig? I call on Johnny Hothead to apologize immediately.

Firedoglake: Dumber than a stump

Note to self: McCain desperation meter rising. Hide lime jello and cottage cheese.

Also, send his campaign a note that they should consult with his former advisor, Torie Clark, whose last book was entitled "Lipstick on a Pig" before they make even bigger asses of themselves.

On second thought, scratch that. Bless his heart. Fax McCain a copy of his own words regarding Hillary Clinton back in 2007, because he probably forgot about this:

While he said he had not studied Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's health-care plan, he said it was "eerily reminiscent" of the failed plan she offered as first lady in the early 1990s.

"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," he said of her proposal.


You know what is sexist, though? Joking about rape. Calling your wife a c#*&. Or joking about Chelsea Clinton's parents being Hillary and Janet Reno. Pot, this is kettle, McCain. (That's a joke, too. Have your wife look it up for you on teh Google.)
